Brothel charges

JENNIFER GAUTHIER/THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Brothers Mike and Ray Forrest will be inducted into the Fraser River hall of fame next week for their work with the family business, Forrest Marine Ltd. of Port Coquitlam, started almost a hundred years ago by their grandparents, Samuel and Hilda Forrest. For more on the business and the honour, see article on page A9.

A 47-year-old Burnaby man faces charges after a two-year investigation in which police shut down four brothels — including one in Coquitlam — that used foreign women who were forced to work in the sex trade. The suspect is accused of sponsoring women from Hong Kong and on their arrival in Canada, forcing them into prostitution. The suspect is alleged to have advert i s e d t h e b ro t h e l s, located in Bur naby, Surrey, Coquitlam and Richmond, on Craigslist. Investigators from the RCMP’s Federal Border Integrity Program believe the suspect was making up to $40,000 a week from the operation. While the case was also a human trafficking investigation, related charges were not laid. Jian Feng “Michael” Li appeared in Vancouver Provincial Court Oct. 13 to face one count of living off the avails of prostitution and four counts of keeping a common bawdy house.

Pay up, Bond tells TransLink mayors Property tax plan for Evergreen ‘waste of time,’ says Richmond’s mayor By Jeff Nagel BLACK PRESS

B.C. Transportation Minister Shirley Bond is cranking the heat up on Metro Vancouver mayors, insisting they “honour their commitment” to deliver TransLink’s $400-million share of funding for the Evergreen Line. “They have to sort out how they’re going to do that,” Bond told Black Press this week. “The Evergreen Line is moving ahead. We have a partnership in place and there’s a partner missing from the table.” So far, area mayors are balking at

TransLink’s plan to raise the typical home’s property tax by $31 to help pay for the $1.4-billion line from Burnaby to Port Moody and Coquitlam ($54 if a broader package of mainly bus service improvements are added.) The premier last month agreed to wide-ranging talks to find innovative new ways to finance TransLink. The mayors now say they’re taken by surprise that only property tax increases are proposed to cover the Evergreen Line. But Bond accused the mayors of playing politics on the issue, adding she “finds it hard to believe” they genuinely misunderstood the province’s intent and thought a full consultation on new sources could happen before Christmas. see ‘VERY VERY COMBATIVE COMBATIVE’,, page A8

Work is continuing on the Evergreen Line for a spring construction start, and at least 30 Port Moody businesses will have to move as a result. That’s the word from the Ministry of Transportation, which has settled with some property owners and renters and is negotiating with others. Properties affected are those closest to the CP Rail line in Port Moody, confirmed, Geoff Freer, senior project advisor for the PoMo section of the line. Although it will be months before many of these business will have to move, the city has already calculated

the impact on its annual tax rolls. According to Port Moody Mayor Joe Trasolini, a drop in the number of businesses will cost the city $200,000 in taxes. “It’s loss, loss, loss for the city, and can you tell me how we are supposed to pay for services that are required as the population increases?” said the mayor, who has concerns the city could also lose its right to charge fees for new development around Evergreen Line stations. Meanwhile, the ministry is negotiating with local businesses to make sure buildings are cleared in time for a spring construction start. see 30 BUSINESSES BUSINESSES,, page A19

Complaint over cop raid Lack of communication one concern for daughter of PoCo homeowner By Gary McKenna

Salmon comes home to Hyde

THE TRI-CITY NEWS

By Gary McKenna

A Maple Ridge woman said she plans to file a formal complaint against the Coquitlam RCMP after police raided her mother’s Port Coquitlam home during the family’s Thanksgiving dinner. Caerau McNabb told The Tri-City News police acted inappropriately last Saturday when they drew their weapons and surrounded the residence after responding to a call that turned out to be a hoax. “I’m furious,” she said. “I don’t understand how their policy puts them well within their right to drag an innocent family out of their home.” Police had initially believed a woman was being forcibly confined inside the home and that weapons were present. They surrounded the residence and ordered McNabb, her mother, her step-father and stepbrother outside of the home and to lie on the wet ground. When police searched the house, they found no evidence anyone was being held against their will and there were no weapons on the premises. As it turned out, the alleged victim was in the downstairs basement suite with two friends. McNabb said during the incident, police screamed at the family. Her mother, who is 60 and has some mobility issues, had difficulty lying down on the ground. “When she finally got down, she burst into tears, half in pain, half

Coquitlam RCMP officers surrounded a Port Coquitlam home last Saturday after what turned out to be a false report about a woman being held against her will.

“I’m furious. I don’t understand how their policy puts them well within their right to drag an innocent family out of their home.” Caerau McNabb out of embarrassment,” McNabb told CTV News after the incident. “I tried to comfort my mother, at which point I was told I had a gun pointed at my head and to shut up and stop speaking.” Communication was also an issue, McNabb said. While police were sur-

rounding the home, an RCMP dispatcher called the family on the telephone. The person on the other end of the line was telling the family to stay inside while police surrounding the home were screaming at them to vacate the premises. McNabb said police need to do more to ensure calls are accurate and she believes some policy changes are required. “If I don’t like my neighbours, does that mean I can go to a pay phone and tell the police that they are holding a person hostage?” she said. “The use of force went way beyond what was necessary for the desired outcome.” Coquitlam RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet acknowledged Tuesday that the incident was unfortunate and said the RCMP was reviewing the incident

and had spoken with the McNabb family. McNabb said one of the officers went with her house to house to explain to neighbours exactly what had happened and to clarify that the incident was the result of a hoax. Complaints against the RCMP are first dealt with at the local level by the commanding officer of the detachment. If a resolution cannot be found a person can take their issue to the Commission for Public Complaints Against the RCMP. “This is not something we see very often,” said Paquet. “Complaints against our officers are the exception as opposed to the rule but there is definitely a process in place if anyone has concerns about the conduct with the RCMP officers.” gmckenna@tricitynews.com

Penner’s killer will stay behind bars Crossley likely to hurt other victims if released, Nat’l Parole Board rules By Sarah Payne THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Ryan Crossley, the young man who killed Port Coquitlam’s Jesse Penner in 2006, will stay behind bars for at least another year. In February 2007, Crossley was sentenced to six years in prison, less a year for time served, after he pleaded guilty to manslaughter. His statutory release date after serving two-thirds of his sentence was to be Oct. 19, 2010 but in the summer, Corrections Services of Canada referred Crossley to the National Parole Board (NPB) for a detention review, which takes place if an inmate is considered a risk to re-offend.

At the Sept. 30 hearing, the twomember NPB panel found Crossley, who is confined in the maximumsecurity Kingston Penitentiary in Ontario, is “likely to commit an ofJESSE PENNER fence causing the death of or serious harm to another person” if released early. The board noted Crossley’s several other violent offences, beginning with an assault conviction since he has been behind bars. Crossley’s criminal history also includes convictions for robbery, during which he struck somebody with a piece of lumber to steal a necklace and $20, arson and several assaults. “Since your arrival to federal incarceration, you have been involved in numerous violent incidents,

Save 40% and up

which include assaulting other offenders as well as staff, requiring physical force and chemical spray by the Emergency Handling Unit,” the NPB wrote in its decision. “You want to maintain your jail reputation and for other offenders to see you as being ‘solid.’” Crossley has been identified as a high-risk/high-needs offender and, while he has expressed interest in participating in substance-abuse and violence-prevention programs, to date he has not completed any and has refused to integrate into the general prison population, where he could have accessed certain programs. “At today’s hearing... it was evident that you are an angry young man who characterizes violence... as a ‘badge of honour,’” the board stated. “Your pattern of persistent violent behaviour endangers the safety of others, is... often premeditated and frequently

involves the use of weapons. “You do not display a genuine remorse for the victims.” Crossley was ordered detained but can apply for a review of that decision in a year. A board spokesperson said re-integrating an offender under supervised conditions during a statutory release is preferable because an inmate is far less likely to re-offend and the risks would have to be significant for the board to issue a detention order. If he serves his full sentence, Crossley is due to be released on June 18, 2012. In February 2006, Crossley was at a house party when he pepper-sprayed 20-year-old Jesse Penner and then ran away. Penner chased after him and a fight ensued, during which Crossley stabbed Penner before fleeing again; Penner was taken to hospital but died from his wounds. spayne@tricitynews.com

The first returning chum salmon of the season swam up Hyde Creek last Saturday at around 3 p.m. and local streamkeepers believe there will be many more to come. The record-breaking sockeye return on the Fraser River indicates there is plenty of food for returning fish, said Hyde Creek Watershed Society president Ted Wingrove. Several more salmon have already made their way up the tributary since the weekend and Wingrove said he has seen chum as big as 20 pounds. “I have noticed several more move up the creek,” he said. “This is just the start and we are expecting this to continue right up until Christmas.” But with dry weather in the immediate forecast, Wingrove is concerned about water levels in the creek. He and society members are hoping for rain in order to keep the creek flowing at healthy levels for the returning fish. “We are hoping for some big rain to come,” he said. “The more rain we get, the more they will move up the creek.” Two bears have also been spotted in the area feasting on the returning fish, a natural food source for the animals. But pets are prohibited from entering the creek and Wingrove was quick to remind residents to keep their dogs on a leash. Fines can be levied against people who let their animals or kids play in the creek at this time of year, when they could easily disturb the salmon return process. “It is really the worst time for kids or other animals to be in there,” Wingrove said. gmckenna@tricitynews.com

is to inform property owners, especially in the case of industrial, commercial and retail properties, of their responsibilities to keep their buildings safe with working fire alarms and sprinklers. “What we’re looking for is maintenance... Once in a while, we do come across someone that thinks the dollar is more important than public safety and we disagree with that.� He hopes the new fines will also impress upon people the importance of emergency lighting, keeping access routes clear, maintaining fire protection equipment and reporting fires. The fines in the new bylaw range

from $100 for misuse of an extension cord to $250 for burning without a permit. Under the current bylaw, most of the fines are $100. PoMo council still has to examine the bylaw more carefully and approve it before it will be in use. Faedo said efforts have been made to keep the regulations as simple and clear as possible, and expects the city’s communication team will be engaged to help get the information out to property owners. “We would like to get our new bylaw out to the community to have them read it and understand it so they know what’s expected of them,� Faedo said.

Port Moody residents and business owners should brace themselves for new fire regulations — and dozens more potential fees and fines — if a new fire protection and emergency response bylaw is approved. Moody council took a first look at the proposed bylaw at its committee of the whole meeting Tuesday and will revisit the suggestions proposed by the fire department at its Oct. 26 meeting. The current bylaw is 20 years old and hasn’t kept up to date with new building and fire code regulations, the city’s deputy chief, Remo Faedo, explained. It also fails to take into account new costs the fire department has incurred for false alarms, repeat inspections, dealing with non-compliant property owners and keeping emergency vehicles on stand-by when required. Although the new bylaw significantly updates and expands

basic requirements such as maintaining smoke alarms, rather than a mom with two kids who block fire access with their car for two minutes to run an errand. “What’s more effective for us is there’s some cost recoveries in the bylaw,� he said. The new bylaw will recover firefighting costs from an individual found responsible for a fire and charge $200 for the third repeat false alarm in 12 months. But charges for re-inspections for business licences have been reduced from $60 to no charge for the first re-inspection and from $125 to $80 for the second re-inspection. Faedo said the goal

previous regulations, Faedo says it won’t be used as a hammer but will instead give the fire department more opportunities to inform people about their responsibilities and more clout when faced with scofflaws. “Our bylaw deals with what’s currently going on in the city,� he said. “It allows us to deal with the new issues and all we’re looking for is compliance. “We are going to be very judicious with the process,� Faedo said, noting that while there are 62 fines in the proposed bylaw compared to seven currently, they will mostly be used to target repeat offenders and those who ignore

$8.3M wanted for PM police in 2011 By Janis Warren THE TRI-CITY NEWS

No new police officers will be hired in Port Moody next year if city council approves the municipal police board budget for 2011. On Tuesday, board members and Dept. Chief Const. Chris Rattenbury presented the $8.3-million financial plan, which equates to a 6.3% increase, or $494,096, for the operations budget from last year. The driving factors behind the hike include salaries and benefits ($428,971); vehicle replacement ($12,400); more auxiliary hours for victim services ($7,270); and extra police dog insurance and boarding ($2,515). As well, the department faces cost jumps for regional policing services for the Integrated Homicide Investigative Team ($24,400) and the Municipal Integrated Emergency Response Team ($7,341). In addition, the board has proposed an extra $3,694 be set aside for legal fees to handle changes to the Police Act. Meanwhile, the capital budget, which will be debated at a later city finance committee meeting, is proposed at $330,400 and includes four vehicle replacements and a new addition ($223,000); computer hardware and software ($71,400); and a PRIME booking system ($36,000). Rattenbury said the city asked the police board to cap next year’s budget at $8.3 million, “which we did,” he said, though no new of ficers will be added to the 50-member force. This year, PMPD brought in enhanced or new initiatives, including an expanded patrol section, Bar Watch program, false alarm reduction program, gang action plan and Sasamat Lake boat patrol. According to the documents, the police board predicts a 6.8% budget hike in 2012 and 9.03% in 2013. Last year, the de par tment overspent by $9,534 on its $7.3-million budget. This year’s budget is $7.8 million. jwarren@tricitynews.com

Plans for fire hall By Diane Strandberg THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Plans to replace Port Moody’s aging fire hall moved a step closer to reality Tuesday after council approved a siting plan for the new building. The four-bay fire station will be three storeys high and angled slightly to accommodate the driveway and keep the building within required road and stream setbacks. According to the plan, emergency vehicles will exit on Murray Street and return to the station via Ioco Road and Knowles Street. Public parking will be located well away from the station and the entire project will be outside of a minimum 30 m stream setback to protect fish habitat. Deputy Fire Chief Remo Faedo said the driveway for exiting fire trucks will be perpendicular to Murray Street, allowing for safer crossings, fewer traffic conflicts and less wear and tear on the trucks. Although the training area will be smaller then the current yard, it will be acceptable and the department staff are pleased the project can now proceed to the next phase.

“City council would like to progress with this as fast as possible,” Faedo said. “It’s just one foot after another, we haven’t stopped.” So far, the project calls for a hall of 23,500 sq. ft., based on input from fire department staff and management. It will include a small area for fire department memorabilia, a conference room, office areas for management and staff, a library/

study, a large fitness room (915 sq. ft.), several storage and utility areas, a kitchen/dining room, dorm room and separate change rooms for male and female firefighters. Port Moody council will spend $40,000 on a referendum, which could be held as early as December, to ask voters whether the city should borrow money to pay for the project. dstrandberg@tricitynews.com

Coquitlam library looks to the future at open house By Janis Warren THE TRI-CITY NEWS

When you walk into a library, what do you expect to see? T h a t ’s t h e q u e s tion Coquitlam Public Library staff and board members are putting to city residents this month as they look to the future for services and programming. Next Tuesday, residents can hear presentations from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at the newly renovated Poirier branch (575 Poirier St.) and discuss how they want the library to evolve. A second open house is scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 26, same time, at the City Centre branch (3001 Burlington Dr.). Library director Rhian Piprell said staff and board members will talk about how other Metro Vancouver libraries are taking shape and will show photographs of new facilities in Burnaby, North Vancouver city and Surrey. Besides providing a collection of books, the library “is a sense of place and very central to the city,” Piprell said. “A lot of people don’t realize that we are more than books: We have lots of other things that we

‘Very combative’: Bond “Once again, the mayors are positioning themselves in a very combative way and that’s disappointing,” Bond said. She said it was made “very clear to the mayors” that a TransLink funding supplement for the Evergreen Line would come before them for a vote by December using existing sources and that a search for new ways to fund more priority projects would be a longer process. “I am absolutely happy to have a discussion about additional tools,” she said. “But we can’t do that in a thoughtful way before December.” The federal government’s pledge of $400 million for the Evergreen Line expires at the end of the year. Most of TransLink’s money now comes from property tax, fuel tax and fares. Fares are considered to be as high as riders can bear and TransLink plans already assume they’ll rise 10% every three years. Fuel taxes are at the limit of what’s allowed under TransLink legislation after a three-cent-a-litre increase last January. Mayors have said loading most costs onto property taxes is a non-starter because of the rising burden on homeowners from regional property taxes to raise billions for major sewer and water plant upgrades. A vehicle levy is allowed under TransLink’s legislation — a $122 average annual charge on each vehicle could raise an estimated $150 million per year — but it depends on the province agreeing to collect it, presumably through ICBC. Mayors last Friday warned TransLink CEO Ian Jarvis it’s pointless for the transportation authority to embark on consultations on the property tax hike when they plan to vote it down in December.

“It’s a waste of time,” Richmond Mayor Malcolm Brodie said at a meeting of Metro Vancouver’s regional planning committee, urging Jarvis to reconsider. “How much more clear can the mayors be? Property taxes are unacceptable.” The Mayors Council on Regional Transportation unanimously voted Tuesday to urge TransLink to withdraw the proposed property tax hike, which goes to public consultations starting today (Oct. 15). A second resolution calls for the mayors council chair (Langley City Mayor Peter Fassbender), vice-chair (Port Moody Mayor Joe Trasolini) and two more mayors to meet provincial government officials to discuss alternate funding sources. PoMo’s Trasolini said the hit to property taxes would be the equivalent of an extra 2% to 4% a year for homeowners and more for industries or businesses. He also said a modest vehicle levy might offer a stop-gap solution. A vehicle levy of $30 to $55 per car per year would raise the $39 million per year TransLink needs to finance the Evergreen Line and the perimeter road. Another three-cent jump in the gas tax could also, in theory, fund the whole package, although the higher gas taxes get, the more motorists try to conserve, cutting into how much TransLink collects. North Vancouver City Mayor Darrell Mussatto said vehicle levies or road pricing are both controversial but are “the right thing to do” compared to simply raising property taxes. “I’ve got bad news to tell people anyway,” Mussatto said. “If we’re going to make them upset, let’s do something that’s really going to make a long-term difference.” jnagel@blackpress.ca

isitors to Coquitlam Centre mall this week got to check out a new temporary shelter option for homeless people in the Tri-Cities during Homelessness Action Week. Containers usually associated with the shipping of goods can also be used as temporary shelters. Although they are small and windowless, these shelters can be outfitted with beds, a washroom and a heater, and are better than a wet tent in the woods. The problem is there is no place to put them. The cities are waiting for funding for a full-time temporary shelter and transition housing but seem to have forgotten the winter mat program runs out next spring. These shelters are not ideal but they are a potential stop-gap and could be used for offices for services to support homeless people as well until a permanent shelter is built. With awareness of homelessness at an all-time high and a solution at the ready, now is the time for some action on this perennial problem.

ou are in the prime of your life: mid-40s, on top of your game at work, a stable and rewarding family situation and plans for a future that stretches decades ahead. Then you get slammed with this: You have terminal cancer and have only 18 months to three years to live. This tragic scenario is reality for 47-year-old James Pollard, who was diagnosed with prostate cancer a year ago. The disease has spread to his bones. For Sue Hammell, his step-mom, the news was a devastating deja vu: Her husband John is a prostate cancer survivor. The Surrey-Green Timbers MLA put her personal situation in the public realm last week, speaking out about the need for a comprehensive prostate cancer screening program in B.C. Hammell plans to introduce a private member’s bill in the legislature — the Access to Prostate Screening Act — to guarantee free

blood tests for men over the age of 40. Hammell wants early screening using the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test to be free of charge — it currently costs $35 unless the patient has a family history or has developed symptoms. The screening tool is covered free in six other provinces and three territories but not in B.C. This despite the fact prostate cancer kills an estimated 570 men in B.C. each year. It’s the most common cancer found in Canadian men and the second leading cause of cancer death (behind lung cancer). Let’s face it. Anything we can do to help men take better care of their health is a positive move. As any worried woman will attest, getting your man to visit the doctor is about as easy as having the honey-do list addressed during the Canucks’ season opener. Most men won’t hit a clinic or hospital unless they’re brought there on a gurney. With a free, structured, well-advertised screening process in place — much like the existing mammogram program for women — perhaps more males could be convinced not to

dodge what could be a life-saving procedure. As Hammell argues, charging a fee for the PSA test will deter lower-income men from taking it and may serve to convince others it really isn’t necessary. Currently, only a standard digital rectal exam is used to screen prostate cancer but up to half of all malignancies can be missed using this method alone. B.C. Cancer Agency statistics suggest PSA testing can detect cancer about five and a half years earlier than the physical exam. Granted, not all medical experts agree on the merits of many types of early cancer screening. The B.C. Cancer Agency is monitoring ongoing research on whether PSA tests actually improve prostate cancer survival rates, and a new study recently published in the New England Journal of Medicine questions the effectiveness of mammograms on breast cancer mortality. There is also the argument of anxiety arising and unnecessary treatment occurring as a result of false positives. But the PSA test is a preventative tool that, when used alongside other health care

practices — such as “watchful waiting” and performing biopsies or other assessment procedures — will increase quality of life for those diagnosed early and, likely, prevent fatalities. For years, women have benefited from highprofile awareness campaigns encouraging them to get regular mammograms and pap smears, and the efforts have saved countless lives. Sadly, cancer that is unique to males (prostate, testicular) too often remains in the shadows, discussed only when it strikes close to home. It’s time to close the gender gap. Good on Hammell for drawing attention to this important issue.

FACE TO FACE: Are bike lanes a boon or a boondoggle in the big smoke?

Small changes will work better F

rom approving specially built coops for abandoned urban chickens to serving up the world’s most expensive social housing, there’s nothing quite like the current Vancouver city council for burning up taxpayers’ money. Coquitlam council looks like a collection of skinflints next to the big spending, big city bunch to the west. Nowhere is the difference more apparent than in Vancouver’s reckless race to ram bike lanes through the city centre. Rushing ahead with all the caution of a downtown bike courier, the city’s most recent twowheeled adventure involves the spending of $3.2 million for a bike lane along Hornby Street. Although popular with urban greens and social alchemists who want to “force” motorists out of their cars, the Hornby plan and other earlier initiatives along the Burrard Street Bridge and Dunsmuir Street have come under fire from the likes of commuters and small business operators for disrupting previously smooth-flowing traffic patterns and cutting off access to shopping areas. Then again, after living through the Cambie Street-tunnel fiasco, you would think automobile commuters and business owners would be used

to having their interests bulldozed. The fact that a huge number of bicyclists regularly break traffic laws certainly hasn’t helped support the case for the lanes. One also suspects that the lanes will start looking like soggy wastelands when the rains of November hit. And speaking of weather’s impact, one also wonders what will become of the lanes when the predicted heavy snows of December and January arrive. Does Canadian Tire sell chains for mountain bikes? One is tempted to feel sorry for the beleaguered Vancouver taxpayer who has to foot the bill for all this nonsense but then recalls the enthusiasm with which voters supported this team of radical activists. They are reaping what they sowed. Coquitlam council does not have the greatest reputation for husbanding the public purse but it has moved far more prudently to facilitate the use of bicycles in the city. Last may, council voted unanimously in favour of completing a 17 km bike route across the city. The cost isn’t in the millions or even the hundreds of thousands of dollars but is projected to be only about $40,000 — for mapping, signage and the like. Incremental, affordable change. Now, that’s truly radical.

O

ur neighbours in the city of Vancouver have been coping with quite a few traffic changes ever since Vision Vancouver took over city council. During the election campaign two years ago, Vision promised to build a separate bike lane on the Burrard Street Bridge. Since taking power, Vision has not just fulfilled its election promise, it has also created a bike lane on the Dunsmuir Viaduct all the way to Hornby Street. And just last week, Vancouver city council unanimously approved a six-month trial of a bike lane on Hornby Street. My colleague calls it “out-ofcontrol bicycling in Vancouver: massive pro-bike change.” He believes that bike lanes block access to stores and endanger business at a vulnerable time. First, I say congratulations to the city of Vancouver for creating safer cycling routes for those who commute via pedal power. Perhaps more Vancouverites will get out of their cars and use their bicycles. Should the commuter chose the latter, not only will they be helping to reduce air pollution, they’ll also be improving their own health. As for those of us who have to commute from the suburbs into

vs. “People who want to shop along Hornby will still do so... Stores will still be accessible to their customers without major inconvenience.” Mary Woo Sims What’s your take on this week’s Face to Face topic and what O’Neill and Sims have to say? Email your thoughts to newsroom@tricitynews.com.

Vancouver to work, well, in the TriCities, we’re still waiting for the Evergreen Line. Now for the argument that bike lanes block access to stores. People who want to shop along Hornby will still do so. Instead of people parking their cars outside the stores, people will be parking their bikes. The stores will still be accessible to their customers without major inconvenience. This is unlike the experience of those business owners whose storefronts were made completely inaccessible during the construction of the Canada Line through to Vancouver International Airport and Richmond, when, as you might recall, their concerns were completely ignored. As a result, Cambie Street business owners have filed lawsuits over the losses they incurred. I say good luck. In a concession to business owners along Hornby Street who are concerned about a loss of business in the short term, the city will help them find ways to adapt. Frankly, in the long term, I think these same businesses will find that new opportunities will be created by the cyclists resulting in a win for cyclists, a win for the environment and a win for business.

TRI-CITYY LETTERS What about mall access to Evergreen Line stations? The Editor, Re. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A station in the park? Really?â&#x20AC;? (Letters, The Tri-City News, Oct. 13). The Evergreen Line station next to the Evergreen Cultural Centre in Town Centre Park isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the only one that is in an unacceptable location. So is the one by Coquitlam Centre mall as it will be located at the farthest end of the current transit loop, forcing anyone going to both the mall and Pinetree Village to walk the equivalent of several long blocks, wait to cross the wide streets, often in the rain and cold. Or will they have to wait, even in bad weather, for a bus going near these malls? TransLink should build the Evergreen Coquitlam Central station and the transit loop in the Coquitlam Centre mall southern parking lot by Barnet Highway, with a covered link to the mall. In exchange, they could lease the land where the current transit loop is located to the mall and allow the mall owners to build both parking lots and highrises on that land. This is the type of normal thinking that other cities come up with all the time. It looks like TransLink decision makers and planning staff donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even use their own system, otherwise they would have taken

The Evergreen Line Station planned for Coquitlam Central Station isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t central for people using Coquitlam Centre and Pinetree Village, says the letter writer. a few cues from the stations on the existing lines that do have easy access to malls (unless sheer luck rather than planning was involved). Obviously, no one in TransLink has ever visited a town with a transit system that makes itself as attractive to its customers as possible. No wonder many people here would rather walk barefoot on broken glass than take public transit. Montreal and Toronto built transit stations many years ago within a shopping mall or linked to it by easily accessible underground and/or above-ground pedestrian connections. Some

offices and apartment buildings even have entrances to stations. In Japan, transit and rail companies have long located major transit and rail stations within a complex of department stores, underground mall, offices, hotels, etc. Obviously, part of the profits help subside the urban transit system as fares havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been raised for years. European city transit and rail companies started doing something similar by the end of last century. Isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it time that the BC Liberal government, the puppeteer behind TransLink, joins the rest of the world? J-L Brussac, Coquitlam

Douglas station will play vital role in cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s future The Editor, Re. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Douglas station isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a priorityâ&#x20AC;? (Letters, The Tri-City News, Oct. 8). The thousands of students and staff who attend Douglas Collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s David Lam Campus in Coquitlam every semester would certainly understand the letter writerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s frustration at the length of time it has taken to get the Evergreen Line on track.

they would most likely take issue with the notion of short-changing the community by shortening the line.

Plans for PoMo’s Spring Street Spring Street in Port Moody could undergo a radical transformation if Aragon Properties Ltd. gets approval for a 106-unit development on the site of the former Alley Youth Centre. Aragon has proposed a single lane for vehicles behind 2718-2732 St. Johns St. (at Moody Street), with parking along the north side of Spring Street and pull-out sections to allow cars to pass for two-lane traffic while still discouraging the use of Spring as a shortcut. The Spring Street Mews concept plan would see development of a five-storey mixed-use building fronting St. Johns, with one storey of commercial space at ground level and four storeys of residential, plus a four-storey residential component facing Spring Street. Council must first approve an official community plan amendment; the existing OCP allows a building of up to five storeys on the site, with a density of up to 95 units per acre and 3.0 floor area ratio (FAR). Aragon is proposing 106 residential units with a density of 2.98 FAR. The public will be able to comment on the amendment for the property, currently owned by the city of Port Moody, at a public hearing Tuesday, Dec. 14 at city hall. Other PoMo news:

NEWPORT SIGNAGE All roads may not lead to NewPort Village but shoppers will soon know which are the roads that do after Port Moody council approved variances required by Bosa Development Corporation for two new signs. Council approved one sign of nine feet by 14 inches for Ioco Road that will change periodically adding different merchants to reduce the number of sandwich boards on the sidewalk. Another sign, eight feet square, will be erected on Guildford Way and Ioco Road on private property and will be lit at night.

cretion on other properties owned by non-profits. At Tuesday’s meeting, council agreed to tax exemptions totalling $916,285, up from $867,000 last year, due mostly to increases in property values and estimated tax increases approved in the 2010 five-year financial plan. Nine churches and five non-profits, Fraser Health and a community police station won’t have to pay property taxes next year. dstrandberg@tricitynews.com

A Closer Walk with Patsy Cline

RCMP boat vandalized

Written by Dean Regan, directed by Shane Snow and starring the fabulous Sara Jeanne Hosie. LIMITED SEATS AVAILABLE!

A resident in the Upper Pitt Lake area is being commended by Coquitlam RCMP for stepping in to help transport two injured men to hospital after a police boat was vandalized. Last Saturday, officers responded when they saw two males who appeared to have injured themselves on an ATV near a residence at Pitt Lake Camp. After learning that the rescue helicopter had been grounded due to bad weather, police decided to ferry the two victims to shore for medical treatment. But while officers were transporting the young males to the wharf, a witness said someone had punctured the RCMP vessel with a knife, causing a small cut to one of the pontoons. Coquitlam Cpl. Bert Paquet said an experienced boater in the area volunteered to ferry the victims on his boat. “Our officers were extremely fortunate to have met with so many people willing to step in and assist them while at a remote area of the community,” said Coquitlam RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet in an email. Police have identified a suspect in the mischief case and the investigation is ongoing.

London has the Oyster card. Hong Kong uses the Octopus. And Seattle has an Orca smart card. Now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Metro Vancouverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s turn to put a name on its transit payment technology of the future. TransLink has launched a contest to name its new smart Transit users in London, card, expected to roll out England use the Oyster card. in 2013 and eventually replace all existing passes and tickets, as well as wipe out the existing fare zone boundaries. Passengers will swipe the cards at readers on buses and transit stations and their account â&#x20AC;&#x201D; akin to a pay-as-you-go cellphone plan â&#x20AC;&#x201D; will be debited according to how far they went, with various discounts and options equivalent to daily, weekly or monthly passes also available. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be the way to get around the region,â&#x20AC;? spokesman Ken Hardie said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Somebody who selects the right name is going to make their mark in transportation history in the region â&#x20AC;&#x201D; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to have huge profile.â&#x20AC;? He expects there will be no shortage of suggestions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We could name it after a local icon, something from the ocean or we could do something quite unusual.â&#x20AC;? The winner will receive an Apple iPad and in 2013 will get a new smart card loaded with a yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth of free transit. (Enter at www.translink.ca/ contest until Nov. 8 or text CONTEST, your name and your idea to 77777.) Along with the new smart card system, TransLink will add fare gates to all SkyTrain stations in a bid to reduce fare evasion and give passengers an improved sense of security. TransLink this summer issued a request for proposals to three short-listed bidding groups to provide the new system. jnagel@blackpress.ca

30 businesses likely to move continued from front page

Although he couldn’t lay out any specifics, Freer said the ministry is working out compensation for about 10 property owners and 20 tenants of properties in areas that will be affected by the $1.4-billion line. Areas of concern include properties along Clarke Street and west of the Moody Street overpass that back onto the CP Rail line and east of the West Coast Express station, where land is needed for parking and access, Freer said. Although rumours have suggested the number of businesses affected by the line as high as 40, Freer said that number is closer to 30 because some accommodations are being made. Some businesses have already settled and moved, including most of those in a building on Clarke Street west of the Moody Street overpass, and Freer said negotiations are continuing with property owners and tenants, with agreements reached based on market conditions. In

the case of landowners, compensation is based on appraisals by independent experts hired by government or the property owner, who gets reimbursed if they hire their own independent appraisers. Tenants will also be reimbursed for their relocation costs, which are determined on a case-by-

case basis, Freer said, and depend on market conditions. “You look at all the various factors, business impacts, relocation costs, you look at all of those.” Expropriation is rarely used but sometimes property owners disagree with the compensation and these cases end up in B.C.

Supreme Court. Freer said although the ministry would like properties to be vacated by the spring construction start, flexible arrangements can be made. For example, a landowner can leave early if they need to or sell out and stay on with a renewable 30-day lease. dstrandberg@tricitynews.com

Sometimes, best action to take is to wait, think That was until Paul saw a vision late one night. A man from Macedonia was calling to him in his vision. “Come over here and help us.” Their response was immediate. “This is what we’ve been waiting for. Let’s pack our bags and head west to Europe.” Luke, the author of the Book of Acts, wrote in his journal: “Concluding that God had called us to Macedonia, we set out to sea…” The word concluding means putting the pieces together. Like a giant jigsaw puzzle, Paul and his companions tried to fit one piece in, then another; they looked like the right size and colour but didn’t quite fit. They were good and better, but not best. When finally he got the vision from God, Paul and his friends talked it over, took into consideration all of the circumstances, both good and bad, and concluded that it was the will of God to cross the Aegean Sea and head for Europe. That turn in direction on Paul’s journey still affects you and me today, it was that significant. Because they turned west toward Europe rather than east, our ancestors received the Gospel. We in North America can trace our Christian roots right back to that pivotal fork in Paul’s journey when he waited for just the right piece to fit. His two- or three-month wait seemed like an eternity but was relatively small in the grand scheme of history. So it may be with us as we try to figure out the next step of our life journey. “Wait” is a very hard command for most of us but it is an important part of discovering the right way on our life journeys. There’s nothing wrong with knocking on a variety of doors but like you do at the entrance of your local supermarket, step up to the door and see if it opens. If it does, the store’s open; you can walk right in. If the piece of the puzzle fits without forcing it, put it in place and see what the picture looks like.

PASTOR’S PERSPECTIVE Barry Buzza

L

ast week, I began writing about a life principle that may help us make decisions on what path to take. I call it the good, better, best principle. I’ve learned a lot about making life decisions from the Apostle Paul. Even though I only know him vicariously through his letters to various churches and friends, I’m constantly amazed at how relevant his own experiences are to our world 2,000 years later. One of the life lessons I’ve benefited from was very likely a great challenge, maybe even discouragement to him. It was in about 52 AD when Paul and his travelling companions were traipsing through an area now known as Turkey. They were on their second missionary journey, no doubt sponsored in part by their home church of Antioch. )I’ve been on several missionary trips sponsored by our church and so I’m very aware of the weight of responsibility that I carry in being careful to use others’ money wisely. We always want to make every day and every dollar count.) Things were not going well for Paul. His team had been asking, after their visit to the church in Galatia, “Where next, Pastor Paul?” “What’s your plan for the next couple of months?” But Paul didn’t have a clue. First, he tried moving north into the province of Asia (different from the continent we know as Asia) but he was stopped. A couple of weeks passed and he tried going past Asia to the province of Bithynia but something in his spirit felt that it was not right. He was for some unknown reason not permitted to go. I don’t doubt that the Apostle Paul was discouraged. Weeks had passed and he didn’t have a clue what was going on. It seemed as if the Lord, his shepherd, was not leading the missionary band anywhere.

And so, the search for happiness continues syndrome recently in Australia’s Top Model Competition, where within minutes, one winner was announced, a mistake was found and then the runner-up took the title. It was fascinating to watch the transfer of happiness from one model to another.) It is amazing how a fleeting memory can bring you happiness. More and more, I find myself indulging in happy memories. But sometimes I must ques-

tion the accuracy of the memories that I conjure up to bring a smile to my face. When I think about Vancouver, I can’t bring myself to remember all the rain — it is always a clear day in my head. I have idealized it, my quaint childhood home

where it’s always beautiful and the sun never ceases to shine. You can call me delusional but I’m happy in my delusions, and therefore are they not worthwhile? It is an age-old question. Have you any answers? What makes you happy?

Naomi Yorke is a Port Coquitlam woman who lived in Shanghai, China for four years, writing about her experiences twice a month for The Tri-City News. She now lives in Chicago, where she’s attending art school, and continues her column.

s a part of my (ever so long and reluctant) entry into the adult world, I got to thinking: Where does happiness fit into it all? So, as I often do, I turned to songs to offer me some type of explanation as to what happiness really is and how I could possibly get myself a slice. Happiness is a warm glow or in the eye of the beholder or something like that. Clearly, I am not too sure what any of that means. All I know is that happiness is an intangible, elusive emotion that we all seem to be running towards. We want it whenever possible and sometimes the harder we try to obtain it, the farther we fall out of happiness. People use consumption and think that money, cars, houses, movies, television, friends, jobs, lovers or food will give them a bit of happiness. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t, the outcome is different for each individual. But a common thread seems to remain, and that is the desire to search. If searching for happiness is a game of hide and seek, we all seem ready to take up the challenge. We search behind doors and closed closets, hoping that our magical friend might be hiding there. Sometimes we know exactly where to find him and other times we wonder if he ever existed at all. We all want to be happy but we can’t all be happy, especially not all at the

The previously bummed runner-up contestant now has something to smile about, and she will smile right through her blinding fake tan, I’m sure. It’s a vicious, vicious system. The winning contests of happiness leaves losers feeling sad. (There was a ridiculous example of this momentary happiness

For example, I am sure one would be ecstatic to win the Miss Universe competition but the rest of the (not so lucky) contestants wouldn’t be so happy, and a few months later when the winner’s naked photographs in-

Wrestling is all in the (Ness) family By Sarah Payne THE TRI-CITY NEWS

By day, Mary Ness and her son, 20-year-old Graeme, are like any other Port Coquitlam family, juggling work, social activities, volunteer work and time at home. At night, however, you might catch them as their alter-egos: Jamie Diaz and Mother Diaz, pro wrestlers on the Extreme Canadian Championship Wrestling (ECCW) circuit. It’s an odd pastime for a family that prides itself on volunteering for the annual Terry Fox Run and Share food bank, particularly considering the history of their wrestling characters. “I love telling the story of how he beats me up in the ring,” Mary grinned, quickly adding that it’s all part of the “gimmicks” common to pro wrestling. Wrestling has been part of the family since Mary was a kid; her father was a big fan of All-Star Wrestling in the 1960s and ’70s, and the two often watched matches together. Graeme caught the bug when he was about six years old, using pillows on the backyard trampoline to make up his own wrestling storylines. By the time he was 17, Graeme had saved enough money from his newspaper delivery route to participate in the ECCW’s training program; he officially turned pro on Dec. 15, 2007. Graeme’s passion for wrestling reminded Mary of the excitement of watching matches with her dad and she was inspired to follow in her son’s footsteps. It was Mary’s entry into the ring that prompted Graeme’s switch from a “good guy” to a “bad guy,” she recalled. Jamie Diaz was in the middle of a fight when Mother Diaz went to break it up, getting hit in the process. Instead of helping his mom to her feet, however, Jamie Diaz joined in and added a few “hits” to Mother Diaz, prompting plenty of booing and marking the son as a wrestling heel. And while it sounds shocking, both Mary and Graeme assure that there is no real hitting in their wrestling circles. “Part of the training is learning how to hit and kick without really hitting and kicking,” Mary said. Matches are carefully choreographed to give audiences the excitement of a fight, combined with the entertainment of different characters, plots and stories, without any real injuries. Wrestling has its altruistic side, too, Mary said, citing the ECCW’s 72-hour wrestling marathon in April 2009 to raise 3,000 pounds of food and $3,000 for the Share food bank. After spending a couple of years in the ring, last November Mary hung up her wrestling boots in favour of a finance and administration job with ECCW. These days, the glittery costume is packed away for her fight-night roles as a ticket and merchandise seller. Graeme has dreams of making it big in the World Wrestling Entertainment arena but said those gigs are extremely hard to come by. In the meantime, both are staying busy preparing for the ECCW’s upcoming big fight: Halloween Hell, a WrestleMania-style show Oct. 29 at Surrey’s Bridgeview Hall, featuring a cage match, gauntlet and a “fans bring the weapons” match. • Visit www.eccw.com for more information. spayne@tricitynews.com

Tuesday deadline for scary stories In the annual Scary Story Contest for Tri-City teen writers, entrants’ goal is quite simple: to frighten the judges. Shock them. Terrify them. Give them chills. (And do it by next Tuesday.) Use all the writerly tricks you know but, above all, be original. Stories that are unlike any others will carry the day, and the night, and the cursed hours in between. Sponsored by Coquitlam Public Library, Port Moody Public Library and The Tri-City News, the contest challenges writers in two age categories — 11 to 14 years and 15 to 18 years — to create the most frightening short story. Winners will receive valuable prizes and some will be published in The Tri-City News. First, the rules: Only residents of Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, Port Moody, Anmore and Belcarra are eligible. Stories must be no longer

than 500 words, and must include the following terms: • pestilent; • dilapidated; • and spectral. Each writer must include his or her name, age, phone number and city of residence with his or her entry, which must be emailed inline or as a Microsoft Word attachment to scarystorycontest2010@gmail.com no later than the witching hour — midnight — on Tuesday, Oct. 19. Full contest rules are online at the websites of Coquitlam Public Library (www.library.coquitlam.bc.ca) and Port Moody Public Library (www.library. portmoody.ca). Winners in each age category will receive prizes valued at $75 (first), $50 (second) and $25 (third). Some will also be published in The News. For more information, call Chris at 604-937-4140, Ext. 208, or send a query to the Scary Story gmail address. newsroom@tricitynews.com

Longboarders took to B.C.’s highways, including a cruise through the Tri-Cities, last week to raise money for cancer research.

/NVSSN0 0BSNADQ

Long run for a good cause By Katie Bartel BLACK PRESS

Five years ago a group of longboarders from Canada’s East Coast took on a task few thought they would complete. Some days, even they were doubtful. On May 1, 2006, Robert Lewis, Carlos Koppen, Aaron Jackson and Benjamin Jordan dipped their longboards — long skateboards built for cruising, not tricks — into the Atlantic Ocean in Halifax to start off their Push for the Cure campaign, an 8,000 km ride to raise awareness and funds for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. “We thought it would be a great way to travel and see the country,” Lewis said last week, “but it easily turned into the most incredible experience of our lives.” The idea was sparked after the mother of a close friend of Lewis died of breast cancer. She had been in remission for five years when the cancer came back full force. One week after diagnosis, she was dead. “It was my first introduction to the disease,” said Lewis. “I was shocked, stunned really.” And he wanted to do something. Lewis and his friends (all between the ages of 24 and 26) had just graduated from university and were in transition of what to do next with their lives. The timing for a longboarding trek across Canada was perfect, he said. They gave themselves one year to develop a plan, book sponsors, acquire a vehicle and create a team for support. But from day one, they were faced with obstacles. First, no one wanted to sponsor them. “Everyone kept telling us that we were completely nuts, that we were gonna die out there,” said Lewis. “They didn’t want their names attached to something that could turn into tragedy.” But the four friends persevered. Even though they only had $2,000 when they set out on their journey, the longboard and skateboard communities came out in droves supporting the cause. “Our community is pretty tight,” said Lewis. That was reinforced when they hit the skatepark in Hope on Oct. 7. Even though the cause didn’t have too much fanfare, skaters knew about it and 35 of them from around the world — one from as far away as Peru — showed up at the skatepark waiting to join their leaders for the 153 km final push to Vancouver. And the number grew to 150 skaters by the third day. And on Oct. 9, 2006, after five months and nine days, Lewis, Koppen, Jackson and Jordan rode into Stanley Park, jumped in to Coal Harbour with their boards, and finished their journey — but not their campaign. “Originally, we had planned on it being just a onetime event,” said Lewis, now 30. “But the following year, people kept talking about it... we had to keep it going.” Last Saturday, the fifth annual Push for the Cure again took off from the Hope skatepark — travelling throughout the region and even through the Tri-Cities — to raise funds and awareness for breast cancer. To date, the cause has raised $931,242. Lewis hopes to cross over the $1 million mark this year. “But the dollar figure really isn’t the most important thing,” said Lewis. “It’s about seeing young people getting engaged in a cause that may not have yet affected them. When you see these young, young kids getting involved in something like this, that’s what makes this event.” • For more information, go to the website www.pushforthecure.com kbartel@theprogress.com

BBB: Not-so-free trials cause complaints Complaints over ‘free’ trials that end up being quite expensive The Better Business Bureau is warning consumers to be wary of free trial offers online for diet pills, acne medication, work-at-home jobs and teeth whiteners, among other products and services. In this year alone, according to a BBB press release, the organization has received thousands of complaints from consumers who thought they were getting a free trial but ended up losing hundreds of dollars in recurring credit or debit card charges. “Deceptive free trial offers are everywhere o n l i n e, o f f e r i n g a range of products and services” says Lynda Pasacreta, BBB president and CEO. “The one thing they all have in common is the same model of ripping consumers off under the guise of a no-risk, free trial offer.” Ubiquitous deceptive online ads for “free trials” of various products and services can be found on many popular websites and the ads often link to websites of phoney news outlets. One company behind these not-so-free trial offers is Striaex, a Vancouver-based company that largely markets to US citizens. The company has an “F” rating with the BBB, the lowest grade issued. BBB states that over

the past three years, the company received 149 complaints, with the overwhelming majority of the complaints going unresolved. The company’s website offers a “free” trial for its Striaex Acne Scar Ointment. On the same website, it states that there is a 30-day, money back guarantee. But if you click in the guarantee in the fine print, it states that it does

not apply to the “free” trials. The “free” trial Striaex is offering is 25 days (including delivery time) but consumers who filed complaints against the company allege that the product delivery can take upward of one to three weeks which would make it difficult to receive, try the product and return it within the 25-day time frame. XM Brands, which

has an F rating with B B B , h a s re c e ive d nearly 2,000 complaints to the West Palm Beach BBB. The company sells roughly 40 teeth whiteners, acai diet pills and colon cleansers online. Complainants say they agreed to pay anywhere from $1.49 to $3.87 to cover shipping for the product trial but were charged as much as $87 a month, sometimes before they even received

their trial in the mail. Complainants report getting the run-around from the company when they request refunds or ask to stop being billed; one consumer claims to have lost more than $860 as a result of recurring charges. In just four months, Internet Cash Machines racked up more than 460 complaints from people who were interested in working from home and

has received an F grade from the Los Angelesarea BBB. Consumers say that they signed up for a free trial package of information costing $2.95 but were promptly charged as much as $149. Complainants also say they are unable to cancel by phone or email, and have no way to prevent the fee, typically $139 to $149, from being deducted from their account.

“Before signing up for any free trial offer, read the fine print carefully and always check the company out with the Better Business Bureau,” says Pasacreta. “You’ll save time and money by avoiding the hassle and recurring charges of some unscrupulous offers.” For more advice on avoiding scams and fraud, visit www.mbc. bbb.org.

October boasts many garden opportunities IN THE GARDEN Brian Minter

O

ctober is an important month for many things in our gardens. For one thing, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the last chance to plant garlic for harvest next July. Raised beds, sandy soil and a sunny location are key. Russian and Elephant garlic are usually the most successful in our area. Plant at a depth 3 to 4 times the width of the clove. For colour in late December and January, plant yellow winter aconites and snowdrops as soon as possible. They are best planted in and around shrubs or evergreen perennials, like Japanese azaleas, dwarf conifers, euphorbias, colourful heucheras and new sedums, like golden â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Angelinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Tone up your lawn, keep it green and help it bounce back quickly in spring by applying a slow-release nitrogen fertilizer like 32-0-10. West Coast turf trials endorse this application. Now is also the time to apply Dolopril or organic eggshell lime to our lawns to prevent the soil from becoming too acidic over the winter months. Bare patches in our vegetable gardens could be planted with either fall rye or Rejuvenation Mix that actually fixes nitrogen in the soil as it grows. These are great organic ways to improve the quality of your soil for next year. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to tidy up your roses for winter by simply pruning lightly (about 2 to 3 feet) and by cleaning up any dead wood. Climbers should be retrained on arbours and trellises and cut back to about 4 to 6 feet. Leave only 4 to 5 canes and cut out the rest. Apply about 12 to 15 inches of protective mulch or even

soil over the bud unions. Tree roses need to be wrapped with wire from top to bottom and sawdust or bark placed on the inside to protect both the top and bottom graft. Most hedging cedars, junipers and other â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;non budâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; forming conifers can be tidied up and pruned to make them less susceptible to heavy snow damage. Pruning of spruce trees, firs and pines should be left until the end May. Non-flowering broad leaved plants, like laurels, photinias and boxwood, can also be tidied at this time of year. At the end of the month, our last two hardy annual plants must be lifted to ensure their protection for winter. All tuberous dahlias and canna roots need to be cut back, carefully lifted with forks, cleaned, dried and stored cool (40°F 4.5°C) over the winter. All tropical indoor plants summering outdoors must be inside now. They need to be thoroughly checked for insects and stored cool (50°F) with lots of light. It is best if fuchias, lantanas and Angel Trumpets are stripped of their leaves. Keep them just moist. As late summer and fall herbaceous perennials finish and look messy, prune them to the ground and apply compost or manures to build up the soil for next year. Plant winter pansies, violas and hardy evergreen perennials and grasses in bare areas for a great look all winter and plant bulbs in among them for a real treat next spring. Is fall a riot of colour in your garden? If not, look at all the outdoor colour potential in other gardens and in garden stores at this time of year, from compact Burning Bushes to tall thin fire engine red maples. Plant more reds, hot oranges and vibrant yellows to bring our autumn gardens alive.

HOT PURSUIT Michael Vacchino (68) and Jack Varney (18) of the Coquitlam Cougars give chase on the North Surrey Hawks’ Chiasson Bailey during a Vancouver Mainland Football League Peewee division game Sunday at Kevin Chin Field. The Cougars rolled to a 24-0 triumph.

Isaiah John-Lawrence rambled for four touchdowns to rally the visiting Coquitlam Vikings to a 32-16 triumph over the Langley Wranglers i n a Va n c o u v e r M a i n l a n d Fo o t b a l l League Jr. Bantam division contest Sunday at McLeod Park. John-Lawrence finished with 193 rushing yards, and was complemented by another scoring major by K.J. Johnson. Nick Dragon recorded two quarterback sacks for the Vikes, while other defensive standouts were Johnathon Broderick, Demarius Henderson and Mike Dupuis. In Peewee division play, the Coquitlam Wildcats moved to a perfect 6-0 on the season via an emphatic 62-0 victory over the Cloverdale Lynx at Kevin Chin Field. Kimani Dorsey scored all three of his touchdowns in the first half, after which the Wildcats built a comfortable 42-0 lead. Xavion Fleary scored a pair of majors for Coquitlam, with Max Kennedy, Nick DePaoli, Keon Taffe, Tyrese Reed and Jude Hussain also hitting paydirt for the winners. Offensive linemen Graeme Melnyk, Dennis Bull and Myke Ferguson were instrumental in the Wildcats’ win. Danny Bennett contributed an interception to the Wildcats’ cause.

Express get it Straight in victory over Surrey Destry Straight zipped in three goals and added one assist to steer the Coquitlam Express to a 7-5 victory Wednesday over the Surrey Eagles in a B.C. Hockey League Jr. ‘A’ encounter in South Surrey. The win boosted the Express to 8-4-1 in the Coastal Conference, good for a second-place tie with the Powell River Kings behind the first-place 9-1-2 Langley Chiefs. The Express actually trailed 2-0 before Straight struck with a shorthanded marker midway through the first period. Jason Grecia then knotted the scored 2-2 before the first frame expired, then Coquitlam native Riley McIntosh fired in the go-ahead goal for the Express at 7:14 of the second. The teams were deadlocked 4-4 when Brad Reid and captain Garrick Pretty tallied 51 seconds apart in the third to give the Express a 6-4 margin. The Eagles’ Jeff Vanderlugt cut the gap

to 6-5 with a powerplay marker with fewer than three minutes remaining, but Straight capped his hattrick and the game by hitting an empty net with just four ticks left on the clock. Perry, Reid and Alex Petan all had two assists for the Express, while Coquitlam product Michael Krgovich was limited to one helper for Surrey. The Express host the 5-6-1 Westside Warriors tonight (Friday) at the Sports Centre, 7 p.m. • Massimo Lamacchia of the Express was named BCHL Player of the Week after the 19-year-old netted 10 points in three games, including six in Coquitlam’s 9-2 home-ice win Sunday over the Cowichan Capitals.

PMâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lachlan captains Clan in galsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; soccer After earning a scoreless draw against the No. 9-ranked Western Washington University Vikings of Bellingham last week, the Simon Fraser Clan â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C; with cocaptain Lauren Lachlan of Port Moody â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C; travel south of the border for a pair of NCAA Div. 2 Great Northwest Athletic Conference games this week. The Clan were set to take on Western Oregon University on Thursday (after The Newsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; deadline) before playing in Lacey, Wash. against St. Martinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s University on Saturday. The Clan, including Coquitlamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Anna Brancati, headed into the action 4-3-2 overall this season with a 3-2-2 record in GNAC play. The WWU Vikings came into their match against SFU with an 8-1-1 record. Earlier, the Clan faced one of their toughest opponents of the season and played one of their strongest games, out-shooting the

Vikings 14-to-9 with a couple of golden opportunities. One of them came in overtime when Lia Marining headed a ball, beautifully crossed into the box, just wide of the far post. Goalkeeper Amelia Ng picked up her sixth shutout of the season as she stopped four WWU shots. The Clan have found opportunities of late but the story of the season remains to be the inability to pot home some of those chances. As a team, SFU has scored just two goals in their last five games but thanks to a stellar backend, a strong defensive system and timely goalkeeping, only two of those games resulted in losses. The Clan exploded for four goals in the final 20 minutes of their contest against St. Martinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on Sept. 16 to win 4-0, including a pair from Lachlan. Two days later, SFU shutout Western Oregon by a 2-0 count.

PoMo gal gets medal Despite having to share the podium platform with two others, Port Moody’s Carly Dockendorf was elated to get there Tuesday. The 29-year-old cleared 4.25 metres and had the same number of misses as S a s k a t o o n’s Ke l s i e Hendry and England’s Kate Dennison, resulting in a three-way deadlock for bronze in women’s pole vault at the Commonwealth Games in Delhi, India. “I’m pretty excited,” Dockendorf said. “This is the first national team I’ve ever been on. A bronze medal to me is huge.” Australia’s Alana Boyd won with 4.40 m.

REESE RAYBON/UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON

Carly Dockendorf of Port Moody finished in a three-way tie Tuesday for the bronze medal in women’s pole vault at the Commonwealth Games in Delhi, India.

Greed can spoil the wealth Every fall, thanks to 30 years of good work in conservation, our rivers are replete with salmon. These returning fish bring anglers and spectators from far and wide to witness the miracle of regeneration. It also brings the best and the worst that our angling community can present to the world. The good news is that there are more than enough fish to go around; the bad news is that greed and arrogance always show, too. Wisdom would have us exercise what a good mother would teach: Sharing is a virtue, and if you have nothing constructive to say keep quiet. Ignorance is not a sign of a bad attitude; it is a sign of not knowing a better way. Let’s all try to get along.

THE REPORT Fishing is good on our Lower Mainland lakes. For wet (sinking) fly fishing try Big Black, Nation’s Black, Baggy Shrimp, Coachman, Cased Caddis, Halfback, Dragon Nymph, Carey Special, Zulu, or Doc Spratley. For dry fly fishing try Tom Thumb, Renegade,

Black Gnat, Foam Ant, Griffith Gnat, Royal Coachman or Elk Hair Caddis. Local bass and crappie fishing is good. For bass try Size #4 to #1 Wooly Bugger, Big Black, Blood Leach, Matuka, Popin Bugs, Chernobyl Ants, Crayfish, Clouser’s Deep Minnow, Epoxy Minnow, Deceiver, Muddler Minnow, Dolly Whacker, Turk’s Tarantula, Bucktail, Hair Frog, Irresistible, or Tom Thumb. For crappie try Black Gnat, Lady McConnel, Coachman, Royal Coachman, Ant, chartreuse Boobie, Wooly Bugger, Trico, Griffith Gnat or Irresistible. Fishing on our Interior lakes is very good. For wet fly fishing try Chironomid, Pumpkinhead, 52 Buick, Wooly Bugger, Micro Leach, olive Matuka, Butler’s Bug, Halfback, Baggy Shrimp, Sooboo, Sixpack or Green Spratley. For dry fly fishing try Lady McConnel, Irresistible, Big Ugly, Double Hackled Peacock, Tom Thumb, Royal Wulff, Goddard Sedge, Sofa Pillow or Elk Hair Caddis. The Fraser River is good for spring, chum, and coho. The Vedder River is good for spring, coho and chum. The Stave River is good for chum, coho and cutthroat. The Harrison River is fair to good for spring, chum, coho, cutthroat and rainbow.

Riverside Rapids senior boys volleyball team may want to consider taking up marathons, that is after playing an exhausting 14 sets over an 11-hour span and placing a most respectable fourth among 40 teams at the challenging UBC Invitational high school tournament last weekend in Point Grey. Edmonton’s Strathcona won the ‘A’ Flight, wth Surrey’s Fraser Heights Firehawks taking second and the Earl Marriott Mariners third ahead of the Rapids, who entered the event ranked No. 1 in the B.C. AAA poll and slipped to No. 3 following it. After winning their first six matches, the Rapids fell 21-25, 20-25 to the Firehawks in the semifinals, then concluded play with a threeset defeat (25-22, 18-25, 10-15) to the Mariners in the bronze-medal battle. “The team showed great courage and determination the entire weekend but we’re physically over-matched in the last two matche,” said Rapids coach Carlo Muro. Rapids’ power hitter Victor Zych was named an all-star.
